A mystery inheritance–with strings attached! Roslyn Baines can't believe what she's hearing. A great-aunt–someone she's never even heard of–has left her a large estate in rural Iowa on condition that she give up her career in Chicago for a year and live in the house. Otherwise, the alternate beneficiary–Jack Jensen–will inherit the place. Well, maybe he should. After all, he helped take care of it for years, while Roslyn didn't even know this side of her family existed; her grim-faced grandmother never discussed relatives. But Roslyn's curiosity draws her to Plainsville, Iowa, and once there, Roslyn–with help from Jack–uncovers the painful reasons behind her grandmother's silence. Now, also thanks to Jack, she's beginning to feel comfortable in the home of her ancestors. Trouble is, if she stays, Jack loses his inheritance. If she leaves, she may never see him again. And that's a risk she can't bear to take.
